Apparently this vile murderer thought being high is a good excuse for multiple killings. Too bad he won't get extra time for killing the baby.

The conviction for a young Edmonton man, who murdered his pregnant friend nearly five years ago stands...
Now, Jared Baker, 24, has exhausted his last avenue for appeal, after the Supreme Court dismissed the case Friday morning. Reasons for the decision were not immediately made known by the SCOC.
Baker was hoping the country's highest court would overturn his conviction on the basis of a mental disorder. He was high on crystal meth, when he shot and killed Olivia Talbot, 19, in November of 2005. In 2007, a jury found him guilty of first-degree murder. He was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years.
Baker was not the father of the unborn child.(bp)
